This is a very RICH breakfast, and very very DELISH. You really won't need syrup to enjoy. :)

It's so easy to make the night before, and pop into the oven the next morning.

This is also a wonderful brunch dish or dessert for something different

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Mmmm....mmmm.... good! We used hazelnut creamer and substituted two slices of regular cinnamon bread when we couldn't find thick cut. Naturally, that "forced" us to spread cream cheese on the additional slices too. No complaints!


6 slice
thick cinammon bread
1 pkg
honey nut spreadable cream cheese
1 stick
butter (1/2 cup)
1 1/2 c
brown sugar
1 tsp
1/2 tsp
8 to 9
1 pinch
1 1/2 c
coffee creamer (french vanilla or hazelnut)
3/4 c
chopped pecans

Directions Step-By-Step

Spray 13 by 9 inch baking dish with cooking spray.
Spread each slice bread with light layer of cream cheese and place in dish.
In separate bowl, melt margarine and brown sugar. Set aside.
In another bowl, mix cinnamon, nutmeg, eggs, salt and creamer and pour over bread. Top with brown sugar mixture made in step above
Sprinkle pecans over entire dish. Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight.
Next morning, leave covered and bake at 350 degrees F for about 45 minutes. Cut into squares and dust with powdered sugar.

I am very new to this recipe site, so I'm just looking around. This recipe caught my eye. I will be making this for the weekend for sure. I love french toast, and my husband loves pecans so we are good. I can't wait! We are empty nesters and I have gotten to be a lazy cook. I'm looking for inspiration....onward I go!

This recipe has become a tradition for us on Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas morning. Thank you so much for sharing it. My mother in law, sister in law and son in law all fell in love with it. We NEVER have leftovers. The only thing we do different is we use plain cream cheese because we can never find the honey nut one. Still super delish!!

All - I made some variations for a brunch at my church. It was sooo yummy. I used texas toast, added some cin/sugar to a regular brick of ROOM TEMP cream cheese. spread c/c between and on top of the texas toast (2 layers of bread). and I used International Delite CINNABON flavor creamer (measures= 2/3 of creamer in original recipe and 1/3 amt of regular milk, to cut sweetness). I also found a can of cinnamon pecans made by the Fisher nut people (in the ice cream topping area)

It was to DIE for!!
